Figures... no offense to any mods. Just an observation that might explain a lot of things.

Q: What is the difference between viet nam and iraq?

A: The draft

No one forced anyone to go. It's just a shame that most of the creative minds and psychonauts (heads) have been defaulted into this mentality. You can still be a free spirit, individual and politically concious and not be put in a box with these socialist. I would be at more protests if I did not have a job and a plan on making a life for myself and my family.

Ironically, where are these people when it comes to women's rights under sharia law? Where are they when hindus, atheists, jews and christians are persecuted and killed behind the iron burka? Why isn't Ms Magazine devoted to the overthrow of sharia law and women's oppression (gential mutilation, honor killings, etc). Where is the outrage? Why aren't these people protesting the laws stopping drilling for oil in our country to escape the death grip of the extremists on our economy? Why are people so full of hate for a country that protects their rights to speak of such hate? It does not make sense, any of it. There must be some genetic or environmental difference in the logic centers of people brains that make compromise and concession impossible. It is enough to drive one mad.

We should be doing more in the middle east not less. Has anyone studied history and realize what is at stake in the next century? Does anyone care? How bad could your child hoods have been? I was raised by a biker and a hippy and saw all kinds of shit kids shouldn't ever see. I came out just fine.

The older I get the more I realize the whole counter culture was not liberating, if anything it was the beginning of the end. All the things they stood for are contrary to the continued progression of this great nation. Think about it. Forcing the gay agenda lowers birth rates, heavy drugs lower birth rates, tuning in and dropping out lowers our GNP. Fighting against our own government while trying to conduct a war... it all leads to worse conditions for the nation over all. Don't get me wrong, I think most drugs should be legalized anyway. I stand for less government intervention in my personal freedoms overall, which is another catch 22 thing I can't understand about liberals wanting more government?

I am not sure which is worse, the right wing evangalists that destroyed the republican party or the left wing socialists who hijacked the democratic party. Either way, they are both continuing down a path of destruction. Rudy is slipping in the polls because he is not conservative enough, great, just friggin great. The only one capable of keeping the clintons out of the whitehouse again is falling in the polls. Just lovely, all because these damn bible thumping power mad dolts cannot evolve and really think the earth is 6 thousand years old or some dumb shit. What is wrong with these folks and why are they clinging on to this creation thing? It's ridicules. Most other books written thousands of years ago are obsolete as well. I choose to listen to scientists with modern methods over superstitious people from antiquity who thought the world was flat... Jeez.

I am registering as an independent from here on in. I have no hope for either party at this point. I have also recently come to the conclusion that we need to pull our troops out of iraq, but with a scorched earth policy. Level the place and leave. Let the jihadi's fill the power vacuum and sure up our borders and wait for the inevitable. Seriously, the world does not appreciate what we do for them. All the aid sent to muslims during the tsunami meant nothing to them. They will hate us regardless of our foreign policy, regardless of who is in the whitehouse, regardless of how much we love or hate them. It does not matter. It's bigger than politics or nationalism, it's theology. Convictions and beliefes cannot be debated. We have 3 choices when it comes to the clash of civilizations:

1. Convert
2. Pay the protection money and live under sharia law.
3. Die

I chose 3 or none of the above. We have come so far with civil rights, abolishon, fair housing, etc. For what? All for nothing apparently, some folks still think the government is out to get them, even though they are the governmet in a representative capacity (we the people). I just hope enough people that get it are left when the real shit hits the fan.

Subject: What liberal media??
Liberal mumbo jumbo? Your opinion I suppose captaind902, but lets discuss some REAL facts.
The negative media attention Bush receives is due to a failed policy which is out of touch with the American people. The election results on November 7th clearly echo this fact.
The consistent coherent thought in this film is the preservation and protection of the American election process. Apparently you have a problem with this concept. Why do you hate American Democracy captaind902?
Fox "news" is NOT conservative, it is NOT news, it is NOT journalism. It is however one sided propoganda. The White House Press Secratary Tony Snow is a Fox hack. When anyone in the Administration is facing crticism or scrutiny, they run to Fox for cover to spin the truth and distort the facts.
Dignity will begin to be brought back to the Democratic Party in about three weeks, when the Constitutional principles of oversight, Checks and Balances,and Balance of power are re-activated and the will of the American People can begin to be accomplished.

Do yourself a favor, turn off the TV and read a book. John Dean's "Conservatives Without Conscience" is highly recommended.

Subject: what the F
More foolish liberal mumbo jumbo. Nobody in the entire film stated a single coherent thought. Every spoiled white person in the world just wants to be oppressed so they have somthing to complain about. Fact: George Bush has recieved more negative media attention than any other president simply becouse of his views. How can you say thank god for alternative media when mainstream media is completely liberal with the exception of Fox which is conservative. Those people in the film are why we will never have another Democrat for president. Bring dignity back to the Deomocratic party, stop spoiled wanna be hippie, college kids from dressing up like morons and babbling all the thoughts in their brainwashed minds.
